Arguably the finest home in all of Quaker Hill, this 3BR, 2.1BA home on the historic registry has been meticulously maintained by the same owners for over forty years. Prepare to be wowed from the moment you step into the foyer that features crushed marble repurposed from the original marble floor . Beautiful, wide plank floors against the solid brick wall and fireplace (gas) create the perfect welcome into this incredible home. Walking straight back you’ll find a delightful dining space to the right before entering the fully upgraded, galley kitchen complete with gas stove oven, eat-in breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances including a built-in wine cooler just in time for entertaining this summer. Speaking of entertaining, the kitchen sliders (Pella) open up to a private, walled courtyard made of imported, antique brick which includes a corner fireplace - perfect for entertaining in any season!
Walking up the first set of stairs you’ll see the original railing spindles from late 1860's restored to perfection. Both rooms on this 2nd floor include all-wood crown molding and inlay trim along with 6-panel wood doors, hardwoods and plenty of built-in storage. The top floor owners suite boasts a full bathroom with sunken cast iron tub, skylight, dual sinks and high end Kohler products. Recent updates include a new roof, brand new (high efficiency) hot water heater and many other creature comforts such as a USB outlet at the kitchen bar, newer basement laundry and much, much more. The basement update was designed to serve as a wine cellar with its brick walls, fireplace (electric), temperature regulation and a 1/2 bath hidden by a pocket door. The perfect hideaway in which to relax.
Local attractions and mainstays such as the Jack A. Markell Trail, Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Railroad Station (Wilmington Amtrak), The Playhouse, Delaware Tech & Community College, and Delaware College of Art & Design) are all within a short walk. The historic Quaker Hill area along with much of downtown Wilmington is experiencing a renaissance. Don't miss your opportunity to see and buy this gem.
